Füssen-Lake Garda Via Claudia Augusta 2024 - Leisure Cycling Tour
A very leisurely cycling holiday along the Via Claudia Augusta with fantastic highlights awaits you: the fairytale castle of Neuschwanstein, the picturesque Lech Falls in Füssen and Lake Reschen with the sunken church tower of Alt Graun. The cycle tour through South Tyrol has just as much to see: Vineyards, orchards and the cities of Bolzano and Merano. It is almost only a stone's throw from Trento to Riva del Garda and the deep blue Lake Garda beckons with its rugged rocks and the delicate pink of the oleander bushes.
